Snooki Hit With Lawsuit Over Zantrex Diet Pill

A Long Island woman has filed a class action federal lawsuit against Snooki, stating the reality TV star's claims about Zantrex diet pills are untrue.

The suit, filed Monday by Ashley Brady in Long Island Federal Court, charges that Zantrex weight loss pills are caffeine pills, which may not be a safe fat burner for an obese user or one suffering from heart disease. 

"Snooki holds herself out as an expert in fitness," the complaint states. "In this regard, she has amassed many fans and followers who specifically follow and listen to her advice on weight loss and fitness."

"Not only is she the primary endorser of Zantrex products, she is, in fact, the face of the Zantrex brand."

The suit also names Zantrex makers Basic Research and Zoller Laboratories as defendants.

Brady, 29, says she was tricked by the diet pill, which is advertised as a rapid weight loss supplement.

Since becoming a mother, Snooki — born Nicole Polizzi — shed 50 pounds. The 26-year-old star of "Snooki & JWoww" was at her heaviest weight of 146 pounds during her "Jersey Shore" days. Now, at 96 pounds, Polizzi insists her size 0 physique is "normal."

"My arms still jiggle when I wave! I'm 4-foot-9, which is the size of a third-grader," Polizzi told in Touch magazine in September, "so weighing 96 pounds is normal for me."

Polizzi has often credited her new physique to strength training and cardio with her trainer. A lawyer for Zantrex told the Daily News the lawsuit was "baseless."
